"What’s your place of influence and how can you wield that influence and how can you wield it towards justice?"
“And if we’ve used money to harm, we can flip that paradigm and we can use it to repair. And that’s how money can be this sacred thing. It can be a life-giving force. And if we are liberating resources and moving resources to where the hurt is the worst in our communities, and that is the communities of color. … You have to explore and find, and figure out what your super power is. What’s your place of influence and how can you wield that influence and how can you wield it towards justice? Towards reconciliation? Towards truth?” – Edgar Villanueva
